From Zoo Enclosures to Wildlife Park Fencing

Zoo Fencing

Zoo fencing

Zoos and wildlife parks are essential for endangered animals to thrive and repopulate, with some zoos containing species that do not exist in the wild anymore, merely relying on zoos to survive. It is clear that more needs to be done to improve security around wildlife parks to ensure the safety of the animals, keepers and visitors.

Jacksons Fencing has worked with various wildlife parks over the years, from creating monkey enclosures and runs, to elephant gates, and stand off fencing around a bison pen.

We can create bespoke solutions with a variety of fence types, from chain link to welded mesh, and timber and steel constructions.

Zoo Fencing

Zoos today are under immense pressure to create fun, welcoming environments that allow visitors to view animals from a safe distance without compromising on visibility, or making wildlife feel cramped and uncomfortable. A report on public safety issues in zoos and wildlife parks was released based on three years of research.
The findings included:

  • Lack of electrical safeguards on the gate for a carnivore safari
  • Unlocked snake exhibits that could be opened by the public
  • A piranha tank left unlabelled with an open lid
  • An unsafe lemur enclosure perimeter fence
  • A jaguar enclosure with a weak barrier
  • The research concluded that keepers and members of the public are being put at risk every day due to insufficient safety measures and checks. After the death of a gorilla in the USA in 2016 due to a child falling into its enclosure, UK zoos have since had similar incidents, including the death of a tiger after a door was left unlocked, an escaped snow leopard which was shot after a keeper left an enclosure door open, and an urban fox killing eight penguins after it broke into their water enclosure.

    Our Zoo Fencing and Enclosure Installations

    Monkey Enclosure Fencing

    As part of their Back to the Wild campaign, The Aspinall Foundation rescues and rehabilitates Javan Langurs; a species unique to the Indonesian island of Java. Since the programme started, they have successfully released 24 Langurs back into the wild. As part of the project, they built a new complex at Howletts Wild Animal Park, which we manufactured to a bespoke requirement.

    Within the enclosure we also created a steel run that allows monkeys to access outside in a safe and controlled way during times inside the shelter.
